Housing and Residence Life
The housing program at Miles is designed to promote living-learning centers where emphasis is placed on enhancing the academic pursuits of the residents. Professionals, para-professionals, and students constitute the housing staff. Each staff person is selected on the basis of his/her ability to aid students as well as to manage the living units.
Living in the residence halls is considered a privilege and not a right. A student’s residence on Campus is contingent on that student’s compliance with the policies established for the general welfare of all residence hall students.
In order to be eligible to live in the residence halls, students must be officially enrolled at the College.
In accordance with the philosophy of providing maximum opportunity for living and learning, the College places marked emphasis on acceptable conduct, social and orderly behavior, cleanliness and basic concern for the individual rights of others as well as the integrity of the Institution.

MILES RESIDENCE LIFE AND RESIDENCE HALL ASSCOCIATION
Each residential unit has a governing body which is organized to unify a cohesive bond between the students, who bring to the residential units diversified backgrounds and geographical and cultural differences. This organization provides opportunities for interest and attitudinal expression through student-initiated activities.

Students desiring accommodations in college housing must submit an application for housing and remit a room reservation fee of $150.00 (a non-refundable fee if the student opts not to enroll, but which will be credited to the student’s account if the student enrolls for the semester) upon acceptance for admission. Returning students must submit a $100 housing reservation fee (to be credited to the students’ account) by March 15th of each year. Residence hall space is allocated in the order of receipt of room reservation fees. Admission to the College does not imply a guarantee of space in a College residence hall. The College reserves the right to change the room or dorm assignment of students whenever such change is deemed advisable. The residence halls are closed when classes are not in session, and the College reserves the right to use rooms for conferences or conventions during vacation periods.
